Discover shocking secrets among the DAR Museum collection. Counterfeiting! Piracy! Immorality! What else will be revealed? Find out the true stories behind these museum objects that their creators or owners would not want you to know. Everybody has a few skeletons in their closet; we’re about to open the door... Your journey takes you through several of the museum's period rooms (each depicting a different time and place in American history) where you see objects that we've brought out specially for you (they're normally in storage). Each object has a secret past... something that normally doesn't appear on a conventional museum label! Did the maker commit a crime? Was the owner hiding something? Find out all the dirty little secrets in the museum's collection.

Katie & Hayley
Katie: I've spent most of my career dressed in funny clothes. After 20 years in living history museums, I know how to guide you through history in an entertaining and memorable way. On weekends I shear sheep and weave on a loom that's bigger than my car. Hayley: I keep myself busy working as a gallery educator at three museums in the DC-area. I believe all objects and artworks offer unique historical insights and I love sharing their stories with museum visitors. Let’s correct the idea that the past is drab and dusty by bringing history to life in ways that are approachable and relevant.
The DAR Museum supports the mission of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), whose three main goals are education, historic preservation, and patriotism. The Museum collects, exhibits, and educates the public about American decorative arts (furnishings, paintings, textiles, think anything you have in your house). This allows us to tell the story of the American home.
Questa è un'esperienza per il sociale, in cui il 100% dell'importo che paghi viene devoluto a DAR Museum.

Dove ti troverai
We will be touring Memorial Continental Hall, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1910 and hosted the 1921 Conference on the Limitation of Armament following World War I. More recently, the building has been used as a set for many movies and TV shows because it looks like the White House! Guests love the sweeping Beaux Arts architecture and knowing they're walking in the footsteps of famous actors.
